the handwriting on the wall. when you look at these bipartisan votes, you have paul ryan voting for higher taxes. you have both ryan and rubio voting for immigration reform now. and i think you're going to see enough votes in the center to raise the debt ceiling without any kind of -- chris: are they jumping shark on this? >> i think so. i think the public is certainly sick of it. and i also think the business community doesn't want to hear anything about shutting down the government. chris: you're the expert. i real me mean this. people advise me on making financial decisions. they think the economy looks pretty good. don't mess it up. >> it does look pretty good, as best we can tell. the one thing to remember is it's not just the debt ceiling. it's these automatic cuts that are scheduled to take place march 16789 the debt ceiling isn't their only opportunity to try to get the president to agree to cuts. there are looming deadlines. so i think the republicans will get obama to agree to some cuts, even if we don't have a really economically damaging showdown. chris: how are we going to deal to e

ryan phenomenon is actually if you are a republican politician in washington or in the country as a whole, there is a real percentage in being associated with serious, substantive policy ideas that other politicians are not talking about. one of the biggest problems the party has -- i disagree with you a little bit on the standing before history thing because i think that is sort of all the republicans did for two years of obama. it goes to the question occurs -- you contain multitudes, so you are circling, but your point about -- >> [inaudible] >> yeah, but your point about not having an alternative to dodd-frank. republicans were very good at saying there were going to make obamacare obama's waterloo and stop these things in their tracks, and when they did not, they did not have something else to say, but one person did have something else to say was paul ryan, and he was rewarded for it with all levels of media attention, massive popularity within the republican party, and the vice presidential slot on the national ticket. when i look at other rising stars in congress and ar
with the majority of voters? >> i think they can. i think they have. the rubios and the ryans and the cruzes are more connected to where people really live. i'm not saying this president is unattractive and people want to continue watching believe that he could unite, but at every turn, he does not unite. he does divide. we're going backwards in the sense of we're identifying by our color and our gender and our income and our region. and it's just -- i would argue that the democrats have moved away from the mainstream way more than the republicans have. and i keep coming back to the state argument. they will -- we are coming up on a midterm. we have a number of democrats that have won in states. the majority of them that mitt romney won by double digitses. with the possible exception of north carolina. those democrats that are in the senate, the senate's not done its job. the house republicans have passed a budget. the senate has not passed a budget since obamacare was passed. those senate democrats that were just elected like heidi heitkamp or claire mccaskill, they're not going to support

mary ellen ryan dismissed him because he was responsible for supervising the students at the time the hazing took place. six students were interviewed as victims and their parents were void. police were also notified but no arrests were made. >> covering news, doctors are treating a blood clot they say could have killed brian stow. he's the giants fan who suffered brain dam after he was beaten at dodger stadium nearly two years ago. he's receiving treatment to dissolve the clot. doctors are surprised the clotted was not tattle because of its size and severity. fundraiser concerts for stow continue this weekend were one is being held tonight at 8:00 and another in santa cruz tomorrow at 7:00 p.m.. the third-base coach's band is donating proceeds from the show to stow and his family. >>> san francisco's district attorney has announced 49ers wide receiver michael crabtree will not face sexual assault charges. the accusations against crabtree stemmed from an encounter with a woman at a hotel nearly two weeks ago after the team's win over green bay. the d. a. determined there was not e
. so let's see what they're offering. what's the take from their hero, paul ryan? i decided to not comment between the election and the inauguration. all of the statements and all of the comments needed me to believe that he's thinking more of a political conquest than a political compromise. >> pity party. table for one, please. the gop is stuck on this one. the president obamas trying to destroy the gop. trying to shove them into the dust pan of history. here's a hint. president obama doesn't need to do that. republicans are doing it just fine all by themselves. for all their bluster about change, gop leaders insist on no overall at all is needed. one gop official everyone says "we don't need a new pair of shoes, we just need to shine our shoes. shine their shoes? that's not goods enough. republicans need to try walking in someone else's shoes for a change. because for all of their talk about out reach to women, the rnc just approved a resolution. calling on congress to defunct planned parenthood with no objections. and while support for women's rights to choose is at an a
or paul ryan have been saying, it's different from what they themselves were saying six months ago, a year ago. i think the focus is turning to the right place. that doesn't mean that he'll persuade the public, but it certainly helps to ask the right question if you're looking for the right answer. >> where joe, i want to bring up something that my friend john podhoretz mentioned, and i say that carefully because reihan salam, my name has up been butchered by others, so i want to thank you for the privilege of butchering someone else's name. it's a rare treat for me. [laughter] i wanted to ask you, part of what i heard in john podhoretz's remarks is that some of the difficulties we encountered, shall we say, during the invasion of iraq and the occupation were things that really damaged the republican brand in a deep way, yet -- and so you've had a lot to say about foreign policy. you've also had a thing or two to say about the republican position on taxes and a number of other issues. so i wonder, is your view that republicans need to get right on foreign policy and can that that is really
in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets. >> if you've seen a single republican say they support that -- >> a democratic lobbyist last night work
want to help them get over they're crushing defeat especially since paul ryan thinks his plan was political conquest. now, he's just going to flatten you. now we're going to undo 30 years of reagan's agenda. >> i'm a serious guy. premium support. [ laughter ] >> john: he brought a chart. i loved it. that's a way to win the tea party back after voting for taxes on the wealthy. bring a chart. that worked for ross perot. >> here's the deal see! >> john: we're lucky because john mccain made a rare sunday morning talk show appearance. for those of you who don't know, john mccain has in his house he sleeps in the attic and he has a pole to slide down and a red phone in case a sunday morning show calls. [ laughter ] >> john: so every week, the pole gets a ride. he's there. we'll be playing some clips from him. today, we have to have a bit of a funeral for sarah palin on fox news. >> i don't know. i would love to think that we've seen the last of her but i don't think so. >> john: i don't think so either. >> i don't think so. >> we have speculation coming out she may pop up on another
but with exceptions. only 9% say abortion should always be illegal without any exceptions lookin' at you paul ryan. no surprise then that when asked if they would like the supreme court to completely overturn roe v. wade, majorities in three polls say no way. less than a quarter want roe overturned in the nbc "wall street journal" poll. 70% say no. less than a third in a recent pew poll want roe removed. 63% say no. the most recent gallup show show similar numbers with 18% saying they have no opinion on the issue. thanks for participating in democracy, guys. but the good news, ruth bader ginsburg can finally pick out the retirement villa. while the national numbers show abortion rights with solid support, conservative state governments are moving the other way. according to the guttmacher institute which follows the trends 19 states last year passed a total of 43 provisions aimed at restricts access to abortion including laws that impose mandatory unnecessary ultrasound procedures on women seeking abortions including the invasive transvaginal procedure. laws providing abortion providers make fetal
's future. >> stephanie: yeah, paul ryan had a very bad day yesterday. because it was a reputation of all of those ideas about the social safety nets and -- yeah. the president again. >> obama: the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security. these things do not zap our initiatives. they strengthen us. [ cheers and applause ] >> obama: they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> stephanie: boo-yaw. >> what about support. >> stephanie: i have a serious and thoughtful plan. [ laughter ] >> can i sit at the big table? >> stephanie: we have to get serious about the safety nets. yeah, i would give anything to see what was in the thought bubble. >> yeah. bzzzzzzz. >> stephanie: yeah because that was a boo-yaw, because that was their whole argument. >> yeah. >> stephanie: we're moochers we're 47%. >> no wander mittens didn't show. that makes me feel bad about myself. i felt an emotion. what was that. [ mocking laughter ] >> normally my indifference is exactly the right height. [ moc
this gentleman. i've heard of him. the name is familiar. but i can't place a face. house committee paul ryan, how do we know him? he was a nobody that came on squawk and became vice president and now it's squawk who? i go on network now. he was on all the time. >> every day .now he won't -- >> he's coming on soon if you shut up. i love him. please, paul, i guess i'm just hurt. anyway, he says that the automatic spending cuts postponed as part of the fiscal cliff deal will go into effect as scheduled in march. a former vice presidential candidate says the sequester, which would cut $1.2 million in domestic and defense spending over the next two years will happen since democrats haven't offered alternatives to gop proposals. but ryan says no one is tuking about allowing an actual government shutdown. >> we are more than happy to keep spending at those levels going on into the future while we debate how to balance the budget, how to grow the economy. that's the kind of debate the country desevens. by the way, if we keep going down this path, we will have a debt crisis. it's not an if question, it's
and the central theme of the campaign. remember how paul ryan and mitt romney talked about the takers? well the president addressed that. >> obama: we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid, and social security, these things do not sap our initiative they strengthen us. [applause] they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> cenk: see, that right there is the moment of the speech. because if you listen to it, it sounds great. if he follows through and protects medicare, social security and medicaid fantastic. that's why he won the election, and he's repeating it again. but look at the reaction. in the middle of that speech he's negotiating with the republicans on possibly reducing medicare medicaid and possibly reducing social security. i'll judge him by his actions not on his words, even though they were great today. final one classic pres
that's not what social security and medicare are, a jab not only at mitt romney but paul ryan, who he will be dealing with. >> when you have a guy who has bullied you in the schoolyard for four years and you finally fight the bully and you beat them like he just did in this election, you're not as afraid of the bully as you was or at least cautious. i think they bullied this president. he went to the mat and re-elected with a wider margin than george bush and saying the bullying is over. we're either going to fight or work together. >> the problem is both sides feel like they were bullied over the past four years and they've got to figure out how to work together over the next four years. i want to talk about yesterday with you quickly and open it up. it struck me as a son of the south, like you, son of the south, second inaugurations struck me as actually more remarkable moment in the history of race relations, because when the president was inaugurated the first time, we all stopped, kind of like everybody in america was collectively at time square looking up at the ticker that said
're the party of small government. americans are confident in the post-paul ryan era that the republican party is the party of small government. and they didn't vote for the republican party in the last election cycle, even with paul ryan on the ticket. and, yes, it's possible that you could, you know, don't nominate mitt romney next time, get a truer conservative and so on and things will be different. ultimately if you look at opinion polls in the last election cycle, barack obama won the election because people thought, you know, he cared about people like us. that's a touchy feely kind of sentiment. it's not a conservative sounding sentiment but it's a sentiment that republican politicians have to deal with and that george w. bush, for all his many flaws, was better at dealing with than any leader of the party has been since. >> it also, though, it's not just brand purity because brand purity is not going to get us to a majority again. we got to be able to explain to middle-class americans, to working class americans, to people who've seen their wages fall over the past five years, how we'
, "politico" just popped up a story about how speaker boehner, with the help of paul ryan, turned around a conference that was ready to go off the next cliff. they wanted to shut down the government. they wanted to default on america's debt. at that williamsburg retreat, he walked them through what the consequences of that was, showed them polling about the blame that they would take for it, let them talk instead of imposing a solution on them. and very calmly, with paul ryan being the key salesman because of his credibility with conservatives, convincing them to go ahead with this three-month extension that joe, you say, is a smart idea. >> it is a smart idea. and this morning, you know, we were talking about chris christie being one of the favorites in 2016. "politico" this morning's going behind the curtain again with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of r
because i'm so fed up with paul ryan the ron paul -- ron johnson scott walker -- i'm done. i'm done. >> stephanie: no. no. no. i just got to meet tammy baldwin in washington. >> i love tammy bald win. i will support her from louisiana. >> stephanie: louisiana! >> listen, if you are going to leave wisconsin, blame it on the weather. >> caller: i'm bigger than bobby jindal. i can kick his ass. i have no worry there -- >> stephanie: when you are moving to louisiana -- >> they have more fun down there. but i respect your decision however if you want to leave leave because of the weather not because of the politicians. there are so many progressive and anti-evil people in wisconsin that's where our sexy liberal tour began. they need you there. we need cool people in the midwest. we need cool people in the cities -- >> stephanie: yeah don't be hypnotized by the bp commercial -- >> i didn't decide if it -- is mississippi better since bp spilled their oil, no alabama is better, you both are wrong, texas is better since bp spilled its oil. >> and the seafood is delicious.
with fights ahead. we seen former presidents interacting with paul ryan at left. every four years, a.b., we're able to watch what is about to be a big lunch. to see look how happy they are and realize it is not true. >> this is really nice. chris van hollen, congressman from maryland, actually my congressman speaking with paul ryan on the budget committee together. van hollen is ranking member. he played him in rehearseals for the debates, for joe biden. they look like they're getting along, talking to incoming treasury secretary and hopefully getting ready to have productive conversations in the weeks to come. but it is, it is an interesting time where everyone has been talking today about the majesty of the day, the respect for the process, even if romney had been here, no matter who is here, always festive and always ma jesstic and always serious. it is a day where we feel a lot of pride. everyone on capitol hill, even when they fight they all feel it is a huge honor to be part of this system and taking part in a day like this. they're all from districts around the country. this is a pri
at jay-z and paul ryan. beyonce and paul, just don't get this together. only in america. >> i want to ask you guys a little bit about the idea of a political speech or policy speech, i heard it, too, when he talked about that we cannot mistake absolutism for principle, it seemed like he was speaking to house republican, am i right? >> as i said he went after them on the takers, the absolutism made the point we have to act now. >> amazing shot there in the rotunda of the capital. thank you very much, mark, as they head in to do ceremonial work and signing, the president and vice president. i'm sorry, david. >> i was just saying he will have discussion now in the country. i think it's good. i think he's learned and frankly over the four years he taking by force of personality he could be a transcending force. he's learned he can't be. he's picked a team, that team is innate to him and he's made i thought an extremely eloquent speech for that side. so i think could in some way an opening for a more honest discussion about what the country should be. >> anyone surprised by the speci
eight, paul ryan took a shot at it to his political peril, it was used against him when he was running for the white house. these politicians, they don't really have the spine for taking a shot at these very, very controversial so-called third rail issues and yet you can see the american people want them to, bill. bill: yeah, i think the other number that i find striking today, four years ago unemployment in the u.s. was 7.8%. and four years later on this very day it is also 7.8% as we see the first family now leave the white house, and again make the procession up to capitol hill. yet, i'm not quite sure how much that will be addressed in terms of the inaugural speech today. it may be brushed with more, perhaps a thematic theme than specific. megyn: you can't imagine he will talk about the unemployment rate which obviously isn't very good in this country and is expected now to stay at at least 7% through 2014. president obama promised if we passed the stimulus we would be no higher than 8%, of course we went up to 10%, now we are still hovering in the high single digits. we are told t
.o.p. caucus even paul ryan voted with the president on that their bluff has been called on the debt ceiling. we don't want to shut down the government. so, it looks like republicans are fighting among themselves. so this debate is already underway in the republican party. >> yeah. the. >> the president understands this. that combined with the 332 electoral votes he got, i think he is in a stronger -- i think he is in a stronger position now than he has been probably in four years. so he has less incentive now to be mr. nice than he has in quite some time. i think we are seeing that. >> right. i was going to say, i think we see that he senses that as well. >> yeah. >> he feels that he is projecting it. i don't know whether -- i forget whether you were there the day he announced his measures on gun violence for example. >> yeah. >> that was straight o here is what we are going to do. whereas before on so many issues, they might say, you and i both heard robert gibbs and jay carney say we can't push for that because congress has to do it and we don't ha
beyonce to turn around and talk to paul ryan i can hardly stand it. you just saw beyonce and debbie stabenow that might be the best couple of the day. oh, please. >> i think she is delightful. she really is delightful. i'll tell you. very self-aware. >> you can imagine she doesn't sing the national anthem every day. i mean, this was an unusual assignment for her in this venue, and this is the last thing you want to make a mistake on, and professionally you want to be right on top of your game, so i would imagine she probably felt a little extra pressure there today. >> i have always thought it was a measure of the civic ambition of us as a democracy that we made our national anthem so hard to sing. >> it's a great picture there. >> you know what i'm saying? >> the rotunda there. let's bring in michael steel, the former chairman of the republican party and our pal here at msnbc who is willing to talk to me even when other republicans won't. mr. chairman, i have to ask you, not just about the speech specifically, but about this day and the president has taken pains to say this is abou
reduction and the way democrats do. we actually went through this with paul ryan's budget which was so egregious the leader of his party had to back away from it in the campaign. >> stephanie: yeah, it was seen as sort of a slap at the senate but they are calling it the no budget, no pay idea. it has been regarded by a lot of people as a gimmick. here they go. it's a new way to play some sort of partisan games right? >> exactly. and it doesn't guarantee that there will be a compromised budget agreement between the house and senate. they can pass one, just as the house can pass one. and that's why it made no sense. they tried to play gotcha with democratic members, because no matter how bad the legislation was, the no budget, no pay is a fairly pop idea. >> stephanie: i'm reading a story about it, i mean most adults would prefer a long-term solution. i know you are, but what am i? >> yeah. keith elson said to the caucus yesterday, we swear an oath to protect the constitution and to do our job. the idea that we have to basically blackmail ourselves into doing our job

(handle squeaks) (chatters) hey, george, i'm not getting any water downstairs. how about you? uh-uh. (chatters) hmm. i'd better call mr. quint. ah! uh-huh! hmm... narrator: george didn't understand why not having any water led to mr. quint digging up their yard. man: seeing as how i can't offer water, how about some fresh o.j.? oh-ho, wouldn't say no to that! ah! (excited chattering) so,
. >> we're number one again, but we're not going to be the same until we get ryan kelly back. so we're going to have to watch that. that's the key to whether we go deep into the postseason. >> i got home yesterday and i turned on cincinnati was up six or seven over syracuse. they had just beat louisville. and you said, you know what? if i watch this they're going to lose, and they did. >> you're the curse. >> joe, who do you like in the super bowl? i want to get that out there first. >> i -- i -- i'm inclined to see the 49ers, but then i saw the ravens and the ravens and are tough and that guy is good. flacco is really good. new england is no pushover and they manhandled them, you know, to my chagrin. i was hoping for a patriots/49ers matchup. weren't you? >> no. i wanted the brother thing. but i can't decide who is the stronger team. i'm thinking baltimore probably. but we'll have to wait and see. >> yeah because, you know, atlanta showed me something that they didn't prevail, but they looked good. they were up 17-0. what can you tell me about, john, my fantasy, at that tacking to
, just taking stuff from the federal government and including paul ryan. he used that word during the campaign. and not a loan. i think it was clear, the president was directly responding to those conservatives who have used the word takers. >> let me give the president a simple test. he talked a lot about the work ethic. i have been advocating that we add a provision to unemployment that if you sign up for unemployment compensation, you have to take a course offered by a business in order to improve your job skills so at the end of your unemployment compensation you have a greater workforce capability and frankly 99 weeks of compensation is a two-year associate college degree. paying people 99 weeks. i said to the president, is there a common ground here? i agree with him, medicare is an earned benefit. social security is an earned benefit. medicaid is not. he should not lump them together. it's not about taking. how do we liberate poor americans, give them the capability to be prosperous so we don't have to worry about it because they are rising, working, doing the right things.
